I have hunted Muskingum County since 1973, I shot my first buck with a pistol this morning. I have always got my buck with a shot gun or bow,this year it was a Contender 44 mag, 240 grain Hornady XTP, broke both shoulders of the 130 class 10 point, at 65 yards. I passed on 7 does and a 6 pt yesterday, and a 6 pt and a small 8 pt this morning, before I shot this one. At the check station, they checked in 90 yesterday and 20 this afternoon, this was the first pistol kill registered. Are there many of you out there using a pistol? I find it much easier to carry and shoot, especially with the aches and pains of arthritis. Good luck the rest of the week! Now if I could just get a 50" Musky!!!!
